yeah, i agree jofo. but i really like their more abstract stuff too, but even that's pretty tame compared to aphex, autechre, whatever shit it is they're listening to.

i think i'll happy with whatever they do, because i actually trust them.

So many replies to this thread in so little time. Sometimes I think this little acreage of interference should still have its Radiohead name.

yeah it's amazing. you remove the hardcore u2 fans from this site, and i wonder if the majority of the leftovers are actually bigger radiohead fans than u2 fans. i know i'm one of them, but it's not just radiohead, there's lots of bands i like more these days.

What should Radiohead do now?

Release a full on angry record - in the muscial vein of Pablo Honey- giving full vent to their frustation and anger at the state of the world - i.e. as U2 used to do before Bono started sucking up to criminals like Blair & Bush, etc...

In my opinion, the last record was quite angry in its own right. Even though Hail to the Thief didn't project anger through obvious sonic gestures, there were undertones of discontent and protest in the lyrics and the delivery. If Radiohead (or any band for that matter) went into the studio with the intent of anger for the sake of anger... the message would become too redundant. There's a subtle difference between a polemic and a melodical thrashing. Sometimes subversive is the appropriate route.

Allow me to explain:-

Criminality = breach of law

Breach of international law = particularly serious breach of law

Invasion of Iraq = Breach of international law

Invasion of Iraq authorised by Blair/Bush,

Therefore Blair/Bush = criminals

qed!

I agree with what you have said, its just I'm more into confrontation than subversion at the moment. But yes, Hail to the Thief could be intrepreted as a protest record.

Well that's a fair point. If you'd excuse me, I'm just going back to the asylum now (i.e., FYM).

Point taken, this section is supposed to be about music and not politics.

You know, it's not impossible to do new things with music and use powerchords; look at Tool. Not that I'd want Radiohead to make a Tool album. Rather, I'd just like to see them experiment with more than just ambience in the future... like make a Rockabilly album!

I don't really care, I'm a radiohead fan but not a fanatic. I'm always happy with the result and direction they take.
